Re: Practice techniques
The only advice I would give to a young guard is to always try to be pounding the ball when you go through drills and shootarounds. I was never really comfortable when I was younger dribbling the ball because I got in the bad habit of very passively and weakly.
It is a big advantage if you can pound the ball into the floor and maintain your handle. I was never great at handling ball pressure as a result of it.
